Standalone Service to Be Called “HBO Now”?

Standalone Service to Be Called “HBO Now”?

Rumors have surfaced that shed a bit of light on the upcoming HBO standalone streaming service aimed at cord-cutters who would rather not pay for a large subscription package via a traditional cable company.  Announced last year that “sometime in 2015″ HBO would debut this service, we haven’t heard much since, until now, apparently. Here are the highlights from IBTimes‘ report:The new service will be called “HBO Now” and will be completely separate from HBO Go. HBO Now will cost around $15, about the same price as an HBO subscription is now. HBO may be partnering with Apple to launch the service (no...

Invitations to the Set of VEEP & SILICON VALLEY 2015

You do all know there are other shows coming in April to accompany GAME OF THRONES, right? The back-to-back comedic exploits of VEEP, entering its Season Four, and SILICON VALLEY, entering Season Two, will also rule the night. Recently those two comedies each offered up an Invitation to the Set that we will share here as a way of getting viewers excited for the return of both shows. HBO often sends a camera onto the set of its shows so fans can catch work in progress and get a sneak peek of what is happening in the series and what is on the minds of the performers and creators of a given show. Sometimes little surprises can be revealed....

Girls: “Ask Me My Name”

Girls: “Ask Me My Name”

So my predictions last week that Hannah was perhaps on the up have been spectacularly shattered in this week’s episode ‘Ask Me My Name’. We start with Hannah talking to a group of wide eyed teens (amongst the class is Maud Apatow; the beautiful daughter of Judd Apatow and Leslie Mann who is growing up really well) about how the story of Oedipus is where the concept of the MILF has come from. She is confidently talking to this class like she has been doing it for years and upon her arrival into the teacher’s lounge, we learn she is working as a substitute teacher. Here she meets a man called Fran, also a teacher, who rather...

THE JINX: Chapter 04 “The State of Texas Vs. Robert Durst”

THE JINX: Chapter 04 “The State of Texas Vs. Robert Durst”

Overview: 2003. With Robert Durst on trial in Galveston, TX for the 2001 murder of Morris Black, many of those involved in earlier investigations – including Westchester DA Jeanine Pirro and Kathie Durst friends Gilberta Najamy and Eleanore Schwank – are convinced that a conviction is all but assured.  Instead, Durst’s attorneys, led by ace lead counsel Dick DeGuerin, surprises the court with an unlikely first witness and a brilliant self-defense strategy. Dramatic footage from the trial, combined with revealing recent interviews with Robert Durst, punctuate the courtroom drama that led to a starting verdict. We start with a...

Movie Review: Endless Love

Movie Review: Endless Love

This remake of the 1981 classic film has many different aspects to it. The ages between the two protagonists have been raised higher to 17 and 18 respectively; David’s background is different; there’s an ex-girlfriend of David’s in the picture; a brother that Jade hangs around with excessively; marital discord between Jade’s parents and a somewhat happy, if ambiguous ending. Class structure, peer pressure, post-secondary school, sexual love and family relationships are all prevalent themes throughout. Jade Butterfield is a beautiful, but socially awkward 17 year old high school graduate. She has no friends and spends a lot of time...

Looking: “Looking for Gordon Freeman”

Looking: “Looking for Gordon Freeman”

Happy Halloween from Looking this past Sunday! This particular episode took us on a witty and colorful trip through Patrick and Agustin’s Halloween party, and also functioned as a character study on Patrick and the wholly distraught nature of his emotional sanity. The series has followed him roaming through life with his mind constantly on one of two boys—Richie and Kevin—and the tension between these two tightened highly in “Looking for Gordon Freeman.” The episode stars off with the trio contemplating costumes in a Halloween store, where Agustin decides to go with a fairy costume, complete with wings and glitter. They’re all...
